This is driving me bonkers. When you're viewing a book in archive.org and you click on the share icon (little square with arrow pointing right) it only gives you links for embedding the book and links that take you to Twitter etc. I don't want either of those and I don't want a link to the page I'm viewing in the middle of the book. I just want a link to the very start of the book and I shouldn't have to jump back to the cover and lose my place. Is there any way to do this and why isn't a normal link one of the option in the Share pop-up box?
